More Multicultural Children’s Songs is a collection of songs from Ella’s world travels. Listeners will catch fish in Hawaii just before attending dinner festivities, and visit an Australian Zoo. There are also familiar songs like “Kookaburra” and “Waltzing Matilda,” but regardless of whether they are familiar or not, Ella adds her own special touch to each song, gracefully capturing the spirit of the cultures they represent.

The remainder of the songs on the sampler can be found at the Smithsonian Folkways site here.
